Diane Piuk

Meeting a Great War veteran in the late 90s changed her life and reignited her love of history.
Hearing personal stories from these men brought an insight into their lives as they coped with trench
warfare and they brought history to life.
In 1999 this passion took Diane and her husband Vic to move to the heart of the hauntingly beautiful
Somme battlefields where they opened a B&B and began to conduct battlefield tours. Their location is
on the former 1916 front line which was attacked on 1 st July 1916. Her tours always include stories
from the veterans she knew and she stood with as they described on the ground what happened to
them during the Great War.
One particular fascination is the research of a soldier to find out his history of where he served and to
try to pinpoint his location in battle especially his last known location before becoming a casualty.
Family history is a special interest.
Diane’s tours take her mainly to the Somme, Artois region and Flanders in Belgium.
